PointCloud Media Proof-of-Concept for Pools

Our friends over at PointCloud Media just did a proof-of-concept for a project called “Raylight4D”, a really cool projectionmapping system for pools. Although details are necessarily quiet, Jack Hattingh explains, “The test was done with a ##### projector and the most beautiful thing is that the ambient light above the water does not affect the [...]

Pomplamoose Projectionmapping- Happy AND Lucky!

I love small-scale mapping projects. Pomplamoose put together this yummy little vid using one projector and a bunch of foam core- done to their mashup of Happy and Get Lucky. It would seem that after a little studying, they’re only using Final Cut and the rendering/mapping engine, which earns very high marks from me! The [...]

3-Sweep FTW?

Software so easy, it removes all artistic skill…. I know, there are a lot of people that this new piece of software will piss off. Technorati Tags: computers, digital media, signal processing, Software-based control

Box- Just Look At It

It’s exquisite. It’s everything I dreamed of when I was a kid- robotics, in-camera film effects, precision. The San Francisco based firm of Bot & Dolly has pretty much upped the game for everything involving projectionmapping in real-time and combined it with extreme robotic film making. It seems a natural progression though, and I can’t [...]

Dub Module Festival Mapping

Posted on February 29, 2012 at 6:59am 0 Comments

Here's an excerpt from a post that appears on Projectionfreak.com:

Festival rigs are nothing new in the rock an roll biz, there's a standard rig(same for everyone) - usually one console- and the LD gets to figure it out when he\she gets there. What do you do when its a VJ situation? The number one rule of festivals: get creative and keep it simple! Check out this mapping posted by Dub Module created for the Splore Festival,…

Obscura Digital Maps Social Data

Posted on October 10, 2011 at 10:07am 0 Comments

While not strictly lighting per se, although it could loosely be called entertainment, Obscura Digital, the folks that brought us the coolest billiards table EVER unveiled a physical, social, and augmented reality experience dubbed “Connections” at F8, Facebook’s 2011 developer conference. Attendees swipe in to the experience using their RFID enabled event badge. Multiple overhead projectors map visuals to the floor and an…

The new PLSN app.....

Posted on October 1, 2011 at 5:41pm 2 Comments

Anyone else try it?  I'm digging the Android PLSN app. It even installed on the SD card so I don't have to suck up resources on the phone.  Great. One more thing to feel I need to do on a gig......seriously- it pretty cool.  Links to articles and emailable....although I'm not sure what the advantage is over using a plain ole browser......we shall see.  Nice work kids!  (this is not a paid advert, although if it were, I'd gush much more....)

Critical tools for the gig

Posted on September 27, 2011 at 6:21pm 2 Comments

I saw that B&H ran a great article on light meters and it got me thinking- what are the absolutely necessary tools for a projectionist to carry? When you show up to a paying gig, what is it that’s going to set you apart to do an excellent job and have people be happy with your day rate? Projection is expensive and when you come prepared like an amateur, you can expect to be paid like an amateur.…
